We, the government, make regulations saying "carry it-this for free". ESHOT is hurt by this.

Otherwise, we did not look at any of our citizens with a different point of view, and we do not.

We built 25 indoor sports halls in the surrounding settlements. I do not count the fields. You should not eat your rights; The Ministry of Sports also did. He built the tennis courts in Örnekköy. It was a really great place, but they are not running it. They put it in the fridge. We said, 'Hold the teacher, let us carry the children, let the facility not rot.' We repeat this issue every time the Provincial Director comes. We finished Bornova Stadium. We are now growing. His project is finished; We will put out a tender. Tire Stadium is completed quickly. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism is responsible for culture, museums, excavations and expropriation of archaeological sites. But we finance all excavations in İzmir from Ildırı to Yeşilova, Smyrna to Foça, Klaros to Teos and Agora. Including restorations. This is the duty of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. "

We took it to court, all of the work machines were transferred to us. We also made documents entry and exit and transferred these vehicles to the district municipalities. I said to a political elder that we paid rent for the service building, 'give us' this building (I asked for the new building of the Special Provincial Administration). 'There is a sensitive subject.

Tension in the Assembly

Aydoğan: yar Half of religion is insaf Ayd
Deputy Chairman of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Council Dr. Sırrı Aydoğan responded to his criticism of "Lack of green space" against Izmir Metropolitan Municipality:
“The real estates are in the hands of the Treasury. These goods must be kept for future use in the public service. However, it has been sold incredibly in recent years. Official facilities and even parks are sold. Does a person shoot a bullet in his own foot? Who sold 100 decares of land and green space in Mavişehir? This is the first time I have seen such a thing in my 45 years of local management life. Who sold the areas to be afforested in Buca? It is said that the share allocated to support projects for rural areas is low. The local development model in rural areas started with İzmir Metropolitan Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu. While the Special Provincial Administration and the Provincial Council could not construct the road between the village and city for years, the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality paved all the plain roads. Half of religion is mercy! You will criticize but put your hand on your conscience. It is not right to criticize the works we tendered for 'not finished'. "
Stunning benchmarking between Ankara and Izmir
CHP Council Member Kenan Çakar, in his speech, responded to the criticisms of the AKP Group regarding the budget by giving examples from other cities. Izmir, Turkey's largest city taxpayers that although the share of public investment for the government that is too low emphasis on Age, said:
“Let's take a look at the differences between 2004 and 2012. In 2004, İzmir's share for public investments was 426 million, Ankara's 574 million. A very fair distribution according to Ankara's population and the advantage of being the capital. Izmir, the second city in terms of tax revenues that most tax according to the population of Turkey. We are coming to 2007. The share of İzmir is 428 million, and the share of Ankara is 1 billion TL. 2.5 times. We are coming to 2012. Izmir is Turkey's second city of their contribution to the tax again .. Received 704 million pounds of shares. The share of Ankara increased to 3 billion 553 million liras. In other words, 5 times of İzmir .. "
In the largest city in Turkey 18 billion 500 million pounds of debt in the amount of 4 billion 600 million budget is reminiscent of Flash, "This is 25 percent of the budget. When we make such a comparison, we see that the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality has escaped from borrowing. While the budget of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality was 2005 million lira in 500, its debts were 1.8 billion lira, that is 3.5 times its budget. When we come to 2016, we are facing a total debt of 1.3 billion in the budget. The borrowing limit of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is 6 billion TL. When we look at the debts, we see that the projects with return are borrowed and investments are preferred to be made with equity. This is a yoghurt meal. Mr. President's own discretion, ”he said. Stating that there are very important investments for the city in the budget of 2017, Çakar reminded that the budget of 220 million TL allocated to the Park and Gardens Department, which the AKP Group criticized on the grounds that it was too much, was 1 billion 330 million TL in the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
